DHSCO expands business, grows sales, relocates to a larger facility

Beaverton, OR – David H. Sutherland & Co., Inc. (DHSCO), which specializes in the sale of spec driven high performance composite materials, film and paste adhesives, announces its move to a new facility. The new space, only a quarter mile away from its previous address, doubles the amount of previous warehouse space. This facility has also increased the company’s office space, product storage, and distribution capacity. As part of the move, DHSCO invested in a new 27-by-24-by-12-foot subzero freezer which is an addition to the current 37-by-24-by-14-foot freezer. Moreover, the addition of a 12-by-12-by-12-foot walk-in cooler has increased the company’s capacity for stocking and storing a variety of high performance products. All units are monitored by temperature alarms for added quality control.

The company was founded in 1951 by David H. Sutherland, a WWII B-29 pilot, and has grown from its beginnings in a phone booth to its present 20,000 square foot facility. The company began as an international exporter of coking coal and briquettes to the Pacific Rim nations. During the early 1970s the company began focusing on supplying products to overseas contractors for aerospace and aeronautical use. Over the years, the company exported a variety of raw products to all corners of the world and was the recipient of the Governor’s International Marketing Firm of the Year award.

Today DHSCO, a second and third generation family owned business, is a major distributor within the aerospace and aeronautical industry. The company is also an approved government supplier and its certification to ISO 9001:2008, AS 9120 Rev A and FAA AC No: 00-56A enables the company to provide service to key aerospace customers such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northup Grumman, Sikorsky, and tier suppliers both domestically and internationally. The expanded facility positions the company to meet the growing needs of their customers around the world.
